Zizorz Captures Screenshot, Uploads It And Exits Itself To Save Memory

Advertisement

Zizorz is a screenshot taking tool which allows you to capture, save and upload images. It exits after completing the task, which means it does not consume system memory when not in use. You can either directly capture a selected region, the active window, or simply copy the selected area to clipboard for pasting it onto other applications such as Photoshop, Paint, MS Word, and the like.

When you launch the application, pop-up message appears over system notification area, telling you how to capture, copy, and upload the screenshots. You can drag the left mouse button with the ALT key to capture and save a screenshot. Similarly, hold Shift while selecting a screen area to upload screenshot to ImageShack. When screen area is selected while holding Ctrl key, it copies the screenshot to Windows clipboard.

System Tray

By default, all images are saved to C:\Users\username\Downloads\Data. You can upload an image by holding down the Shift button while taking screenshots. For now only ImageShack is supported but the developer has assured of adding more services in future versions.

Saved Screenshots

Right-click on Zizorz icon from the system tray to access Settings. Here, you can change the default directory for saving screenshots, create a desktop shortcut for launching Zizorz, enable/disable notifications and send feedback to the developer.

Zizorz is still in early development stage and the developer has asked for feedback and suggestions to enhance usability and to debug the problems. For now, it is quite a raw application with little use. One of the major problems with it is that it exits after completing a function and requires being re-launched. While the developer has mentioned this to be an advantage as it ensures that Zizorz does not take up system memory when not active, this however, can be quite irritating for many users. Moreover, one has to go to the saved screenshot directory manually and does not get a prompt or preview screenshots as they get saved. The developer needs to add more useful features before Zizorz can become a serious competitior to other free screenshot taking applications such as Shotty or Greenshot.

Zizorz works on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.

    It happens that Zizorz is on-demand since it is intended to be launched through Appifyer [http://appifyer.com/]
    Appifyer allows you to launch Zizorz through a hotkey, and will soon be able to launch through hotcorners, hotstrings, and mouse gestures.

    Quote from the author (sumon):
    “It might also be mentioned that the ‘On-demand’ style of Zizorz is a design choice & philosophy that goes well with Appifyer’s concept of using many small apps.”

    I use Zizorz daily – the simple upload is amazing.

    Author (me) popping in to say hi, like the article mentions I am constantly trying to improve this app due to its’ popularity. As Chris says, it is “on-demand” by design, since I believe in the power of many small apps with specific purposes rather than the numerous “in-the-tray” jack-of-all-trades apps that are around.

    This is also the strength of Appifyer, which can be found at http://www.appifyer.com and is expected to enter public beta (is now in alpha) in a few weeks. I’ll keep addictivetips informed 😉

    Oh, and one final tip, if you do not (yet) have Appifyer: In the settings there is a button to “Create shortcut & hotkey for Zizorz”. This will not only create a shortcut on your desktop (*.lnk), but also a keybinding to that shortcut – meaning that you can launch Zizorz at any time, using explorer.exe which is always running. This “trick” can also be used to run other apps – but if you plan on doing that, Appifyer is a much better way of doing so.

    Enjoy!
